- A nearly White Hot side two with the complete Saint-Saens work
- Side two has explosive dynamics and near-perfect violin reproduction
- Side one has the first movement of the Paganini Concerto No. 1
- A Mohr/Layton Living Stereo Shaded Dog pressing from 1962
Side Two – Paganini – 2nd / 3rd Movements / Saint-Saens – Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso
A++ to A+++, nearly White Hot. Big and lively, and so involving. Huge space, great dynamics, so immediate and engrossing.
It’s one of the best sounding violin-led orchestral recordings we have played in recent memory, and we’ve played them by the hundreds and hundreds. (Practice makes perfect as they say.)
Side two of this copy easily puts most of the TAS Super Discs to shame. I would venture to say that there’s a very good chance that you have NEVER heard a violin-led orchestral recording as good as this one (that is, unless you own some of our White Hot Stamper violin records).
